When asked where they think missionaries should go today, many people say places like Africa, India or South America. ...

Few would suggest Slovenia, although it’s one of the world’s most unevangelised countries.

Sarah Deacon explains why she has just moved there.

“I like having a plan. I like being organised and so it wasn’t easy for me to go into a situation where I wasn’t exactly sure what I’d be doing. That‘s why I was comfortable with feeling God was leading me to work in archaeology, with maybe a short-term mission trip in holiday times.

But on my first holiday to Slovenia in January 2016 I fell in love with the country and its people. God had a different plan for me.

“I can look back and see how God was preparing me for my move to Slovenia, which came in May 2018. One factor is the great need here. Only one in 1000 people in Slovenia is an evangelical believer. Slovenia’s traditional nominal Catholicism is giving way to a rapid spread of secularism across the nation.
